Change the default settings on the Advanced TAB instead of general.  If it is shared from the server then you should make the change on the server then delete and reinstall the driver on the client machines.  Shared HP printers often don't pass down changes made after clients have installed the driver.

To paraphrase tonyperth, go to the Advanced tab in printer properties. Click the Printing Defaults button, and change it there. Then click the General tab, the Printing Preferences button and make the change there too, if necessary (it does not always seem to come through by itself). And yes, you must do it on the server.

I feel that tonyprth should have gotten the points, or at least some of them. He gave the correct answer; I just explained it a bit more carefully.
